B is correct. It preserves the meaning and is grammatically correct.

The intended meaning of the statement is power of both the chips and elec devices !!! hence options A C and E are out !!!

Between B and D B is correct since power has is correct
power have is incorrect in E

IMO E

Shouldn't the first part of the sentence say:

As the etched lines on computer memory chips have become thinner and the circuits of the chips more complex...

else you break the parallelism.

Need the power of so B) and D) remains.

D) has issue of "have", need singular

IMO B)
